Use digital signing to replace wet ink signatures and create non-repudiable, legally binding documents. Digital signing allows financial organizations to streamline signing and approval processes, eliminate paper and establish an electronic audit trail. This audit trail adds to the integrity of the digital signing process by providing documentary evidence of the sequence of signing activities that took place.
Digital signatures can also be used to sign email communications, reassuring the recipient that the sender is actually you. Digital signing of documents and email is the best way to ensure that the digital media remains intact, protecting the overall integrity of the document or email.
The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) enacted June 30, 2000 is a U.S. federal law that facilitates the use of electronic records and electronic signatures in interstate and foreign commerce by insuring the validity and legal effect of contracts entered into electronically. Former President Bill Clinton used an IdenTrust digital certificate to approve the ESIGN ACT.
